also know that they called for the revenge against the united states for a killing by a terrorist by a drone attack. they had ample warning. did they fall down on the job? >> it seems like there were a number of cascade go failures. it's fair to say it was probably a serious mistake for the ambassador stevens to go to benghazi. it was a serious mistake for them to have a marine detachment at our facility in benghazi. i'll say this for stevens. he was a brave guy. he was involved in a transition and wanted to be involved in the transition for building a new libya. you have to take some kind of risks like that. >> there is no question about that. but people knew that libya was a terrorist center. almost all of our facilities is secured by marine guards. it would be strange marine guards guarding bahamas but not in tripoli. >> so why did the administration go to the story. it was all about the video reaction in the muslim world -- let's face it an obscure youtube video that nobody knew about until after the riot started? >> i think the key question. i don't know why they went to that

williams, thank you. >>> two american warships and elite united nations of the united states marines are on their way to libya this morning. investigators are already there looking for the people who killed the four americans. in benghazi, libya, visiting the ruins, charlie what did you see? >> reporter: well, nora, ruins is a good way to describe it, because the place has been decimated. every single building, every single room has been torched, everything inside smashed to pieces or taken out. really, there would have been no place to hide in that compound. when you talk to libyans here you hear the same thing. everybody is heartbroken. they're saddened, shocked by what's happened. they say that they're ashamed of what's happened. they say the ambassador is a personal friend to the libyans. he was here for growth, to show there is a stable future forelibya, ironically, and they held a pro-american rally last night here in benghazi to reinforce those sentiments. so, you know, even days after this event, there is a sense of shock, of anger at those behind it, and the investigation no

that the united states is engaged in a war with islam and that the west is against islam. it's something that western politicians don't like to talk about and don't like to address. but it's what fuels the anger and the rage. and they're able to exploit that very easily, as was evidenced in libya. and that ideology is what is dangerous. so although one particular group may have been involved in planning the attack, the ideology fueling that kind of attack has come from a different place. and it's all over the world. it's a global threat. and some intelligence officials say it's not being dealt with aadequately. >> lara, that's an interesting piece in "the wall street journal" this morning about the ultra conservative islamist group that is a target of u.s. and libyan inquiries, the worry about this threatening the arab spring. how does this change u.s. policy in the middle east, since we've got protests in libya, egypt and now yemen this morning? >> u.s. policy in the middle east has been something of a roll of the dice since the arab spring began. it's been very clear to u.s. officials

to understand is that there is no moral equivalencesy here between iran and israel and the united states. america and israel hold a certain values, pluralism, tolerance, religious pluralism, equal rights for women, all of these things. we are in a cultural war, a clash of civilizations. the media continue to buy into this myth that they bought into during world war ii and in the months and years preceding it, that dictators can be appeased by simply giving something that they lack. and you see that in the editorials and the columns in most of the new york times and l.a. times, wrong. >> rick: and the photos of prime minister netanyahu posing as the worst dictator in the history of dictatorships, what were they doing, other than show political bias? >> it was an accident. what's reallily particularly atrocious about this, i'm know the a huge netanyahu fan, abouter say, but the fact that they have so much animus towards him that they don't have to ahmadnejad. if you compared the two, i don't think they should be allowed to send the picture out like that. you don't see them expressing ange
. in your judgment, would that have to have been passed along to officials here in the united states? are they therefore, in some ways complicity or responsible for what happened to him? >> when you have four murders like that, there is obvious a breakdown in security. forget the post event scenario. just concentrating on the fact that they were exposed the way they were indicates systemic failures among other things. i said before when i was in new york at any given time outside the mission or outside my residence, i had a package of three diplomatic security personnel with me. he had one in benghazi. there is something badly wrong with that scenario. >> gregg: all right. that is a tragic story all the way around. there may be a whole lot more evidence that emerges in the days and months ahead. have a great evening. thank you for dropping by. >> thank you. >> heather: coming up, final sprinted to the white house underway, polls show president obama is having trouble getting one key voting bloc, military vets and we'll talk about it next.

of all of the united states say 40% of the american people view themselves as victims and want handouts. what is that -- how bad is this? >> let's start with the 47% figure, which paul did not dispute. which no one has disputed. it was originally reported by the associated press. it's a fact. 47% of the country no longer pays any income tax. and those are the taxes that provide for food stamps and a whole series of social welfare, for a lot of redistribution of income. >> do they view themselves as victims? >> well, that is a different question. i don't know the answer to that whether they consider themselves a victim or no but what paul very cleverly did was define poverty upward. if we're a nation where 47% of the country is considered in poverty and should not pay any taxes, income taxes, boy, are we in big trouble. middle class people should be paying income taxes. and that's why it's a difference. the best way to hurt programs that help people who need it and who are low income is for these programs to grow like mushrooms to attract such a great proportion of the country that peopl
